And now for the teething remedy review…

I received these items at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own. 

At nearly eight months old, Huckleberry still hasn’t cut any teeth, but he has been teething for about five months now. All of the telltale signs are there: excessive drooling, rosy cheeks, inexplicable fussiness, incessant need to chew, and so on. The teething experience is different for every baby, and successful coping mechanisms will also vary from infant to infant and sometimes day to day. When Huckleberry was a little smaller and couldn’t yet hold a teething toy, we used some handmade waterproof teething mittens and those worked really well for him. Then, as he became more dexterous, Sophie the Giraffe was his best friend. Now, he seems to prefer harder toys, and unless provided with an appropriate teething toy, he will teethe on anything from my flip flops to metal dinky cars to the dog’s chew toys. Thanks to Go Green Baby’s own wooden toy line “Re-Wood”, we now have an adorable, all-natural, locally made, appropriate hard teething toy.

About 95% of the time Huckleberry is a pretty happy camper, just chewing on his owl-shaped chunk of wood and pushing through the pain. But there are days when he needs a little something more. We prefer to take a more natural approach with most things in life, and teething remedies are no exception. So we turn to Punkin Butt Teething Oil before over-the-counter painkillers like Tylenol, Motrin or Oragel. When you use this teething oil, you know exactly what you are massaging into your wee one’s gums. And it’s much easier to use on a babe who refuses to take a bottle or soother and gags and spits up all over the place when we use a syringe. Yeah, fun stuff! Punkin Butt Teething Oil also smells delightful and has kept our little pumpkin happy and tear-free on his teething journey so far.

Paired together, our Re-Wood Teething Toy and Punkin Butt Teething Oil create the perfect all-natural teething solution. The two of them keep Huckleberry happy, and if he’s happy, we’re happy!

The Stars of the Show: Re-Wood Teething Toy & Punkin Butt Teething Oil featuring…

  1. Re-Wood Teething Toy: smooth, seamless, handmade teething toy made from cherry wood (also available in maple)
  2. Punkin Butt Teething Oil: all-natural teething oil made with essential oils of chamomile, clove and peppermint

What we love about our teething remedy:

Wooden teething toy:

  • It is beautiful! There is a small part of me that would rather display this teething toy than let Huckleberry gnaw on it. It is just so pretty!
  • It is tough! It still looks brand new despite the fact that Huckleberry whacks it on everything, including rocks while we were camping.
  • It is light and portable! It seems a little bulky at first, but I can pocket it easily, and with the hole, it can be easily attached to just about any soother clip. We prefer to use our Between You and Me Teething soother clip with our teething toy for extra chewing options.
  • It is natural! It is made of wood, 100% from a tree. Can you get more natural than that?
  • It is locally made! All of the Re-Wood toys are made in the home workshop of Natalie and Jamin, owners of h, in Kingston, Ontario. And I love to support local businesses!

Teething oil:

  • It works wonders! Moments after massaging this magical oil into Huckleberry’s gums, he is calm and happy. It soothes so quickly.
  • It smells incredible! Chamomile, clove and peppermint, ahhhhh. It is definitely reminiscent of Autumn and pumpkin spice everything, with all of that clove! Would it be appropriate to borrow a little for a massage? I think so!
  • It is all-natural! We try our best to find a natural solution to all of life’s problems, and teething pains are no exception. It is such a good feeling knowing exactly what you’re putting in your babe’s mouth and knowing that it is safe and natural.

What we would change if we could:

  • Nothing! Seriously though, I often feel compelled to find something wrong with every product I review. I feel like that shows transparency, honesty even. But we are 100% happy with this teething toy and teething oil. We have not needed to look any further.

    This could not come at a better time! Our 3.5 month old has begun teething, but she can’t quite put her soother in her mouth by herself, let alone a teether. Oil that we could apply for her would be heaven-sent!

    Great read! I’ve got a little man that’s teething like crazy … I hate always having to give him Tylenol. I’m looking for a more natural solution. Can’t wait to try it!
